Terrapin Mosaic (Side Project Vol. 19)
Terrapin Mosaic is an American Amber/Red Ale and is Volume 19 in their Side Project Series. This is a single hopped rye red ale that uses… Mosaic Hops! The base sweet caramel malts are but a backdrop for the spicy rye and featured hops. I’m smelling classic dense pine on the nose, with a lot of bitterness as well in the taste. A relative to Simcoe, the Mosaic hops do have a nice earthy/piney profile. I’d say that this solid side project is worth a bottle or two.
